S. Targon m.
A Gondorian (LotR/762), his name might be a combination of taer “noble” and -gon “lord” (as suggested by David Salo, GS/357).
Conceptual Development: In Lord of the Rings drafts from the 1940s, this character was first named N. Duilas, revised to N. Garathon (WR/283) and finally to N. Targon (WR/288).
